Our Pedestrian Accident Lawyers Don’t Back Down
Florida is a no-fault state, which means that filing a claim and recovering all the compensation you need can be both confusing and challenging. Our law firm has devoted the past half century to protecting and supporting those who have suffered personal injuries in Newberry and other areas across the state.
We take on your fight as if it was our own. Our team is known as a force to be reckoned with, inside and outside the courtroom. We use our firm’s decades of acquired skill and knowledge to the benefit of every client we serve.
To advance your legal goals, you can expect your personal injury attorney to:
- Investigate the accident
- Secure a copy of the accident report
- Review medical records and other case-related documents
- Gather invoices and other financial documentation to account for your losses
- Manage all case-related communications with the insurance company and other party’s lawyers
- Prove the at-fault party’s negligence
- File an insurance claim for compensation
- Negotiate with the liable party’s insurance company
- Prepare your case for trial and represent you in court if negotiations do not produce the compensation you are due
We have recovered millions in personal injury compensation settlements and verdicts for our clients. Recently, our team won $1.2 million for a pedestrian hit and injured by a car pulling out of a parking lot. In another case, we secured $305,000 for a toddler struck by a car pulling out of a driveway.

We Pursue Compensation for Your Losses After a Newberry Pedestrian Accident
All Florida drivers are required to carry a minimum $10,000 personal injury protection (PIP) policy as a first line of payment for medical expenses and lost wages.
As a pedestrian, you may use your own PIP plan (if you have a policy) to cover your losses. If you don’t drive and don’t have car insurance, you could seek damages through the at-fault driver’s coverage. Financial compensation could include:
Your medical care, treatment, and out-of-pocket expenses now and in the future are compensable when the driver is liable for your losses. These costs may include surgeries, medications, assistive devices, physical therapy, mental health counseling, and hospitalization.
Loss of Current or Future Income
During your recovery, you may not be able to work and earn income, or you may only be able to work at a reduced income level. This is considered lost income, which you may recover. If your injuries are severe, your future earnings may also be affected. You can recover any loss related to your working ability, including lost tips, bonuses, benefits, and commissions.
Property Damage Costs
Your personal property might have been damaged in the collision. These items can include electronic devices and prescription glasses. We leave no stone unturned when accounting for each of your injury-related losses.
An accident from which you suffer injuries can cause losses that have no receipts attached. Still, these losses are compensable based on the details of your accident, injuries, and losses. Examples of non-economic damages include:
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish/emotional distress
- Scarring and disfigurement
Florida is one of many states that doesn’t cap how much you can recoup for your non-economic damages. Given this, these losses could comprise a significant portion of your potential settlement’s value.
Wrongful Death-Related Losses
If your loved one passed in a pedestrian accident, their beneficiaries and estate may recover many damages associated with a standard personal injury claim. Yet, they could also pursue damages like loss of consortium, loss of household benefits, funeral expenses, and final medical expenses.
There are likely losses unique to your case that are not reflected in this general list of damages. Our pedestrian accident attorneys help you identify all of your losses and build your claim to account for them.
